God is Thought. The brightness of our revelations depends upon the correctness of our doctrines,
our building blocks, our Godly thoughts, the mind of Christ, laid one upon another.
(Psalm 37:29) The righteous [Heb: just, lawful] [saved] shall inherit [Heb: possess] the land, and dwell therein for ever.
(Prov 2:21,22) For the upright [Heb: straight] [vs. crooked] shall dwell in the land, and the perfect [Heb: without blemish: undefiled, upright] shall remain in it. But the wicked [Heb: morally wrong: ungodly] shall be cut off [Heb: destroyed, consumed] from the earth, and the transgressors [Heb: fig. to act covertly: deal deceitfully, treacherous, unfaithful] shall be rooted out [Heb: to tear away: destroyed] of it.
(Prov 10:30) The righteous [Heb: just, lawful] [saved] shall never be removed [Heb: shaken]: but the wicked [Heb: morally wrong: ungodly] shall not inhabit [Heb: reside: dwell on] the earth.
(Heb 12:27) And this word [of God], Yet once more, signifieth [Gk: declares] the removing of those things that are shaken [Gk: agitated, rocked, toppled or destroyed], as of things that are made [by man], that those things which cannot be shaken [created by God] may remain [Gk: stay: abide, continue, dwell].
THE FIRST RESURRECTION
(1 Thes 4:13-18) But I would not have you to be ignorant [Gk: not to know (through lack of information)], brethren, concerning them which are asleep [Gk: fig. deceased: be dead], that ye sorrow not [Gk: be distressed, sad: grieved], even as others [sorrow] which have no hope . For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus [who are dead Christians and imputed for righteousness OT Saints] will God bring with him [i.e., with the second coming of Jesus “revealed in us” Rom 8:18].  For this we say unto you by the word [Gk: logos] of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent [Gk: precede, come before] them which are asleep [Gk: dead]. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel [“Michael the archangel” Jude 1:9], and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up [Gk: seized: plucked up, taken by force] together with them [the resurrected dead in Christ] in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
1. (Titus 2:11-13) For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared [Gk: to shine upon, become (literally) visible, fig. known: give light] [i.e., Jesus Christ] to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world [Gk: aion]; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing [Gk: manifestation, (specifically) the advent of Christ (past or future): brightness] of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
THE FIRST RESURRECTION
(Rev 20:1-8) And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign [Gk: rule] with him a thousand years. And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
THE FIRST RESURRECTION
O YE DRY BONES, HEAR THE WORD OF THE LORD
(Ezek 37:1-6) The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit [in a type of (hypnotic) trance] of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones [Heb: a bone (as strong)], And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many [human bones] in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry. And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, [only] thou knowest. Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD. Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath [i.e., the Holy Spirit] to enter into you, and ye shall live: And I will lay sinews [Heb: tendons] upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath [i.e., the Holy Spirit] in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know [Heb: understand] that I am the LORD.
(Ezek 37:7,8) So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking [Heb: uproar: commotion, confused noise, earthquake, quaking, rattling] [Heb: 12:27], and the bones came together, bone to his bone. And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.
AN EXCEEDING GREAT ARMY
(Ezek 37:9,10) Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind [a symbol of the Holy Spirit], Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live. So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
THE FIRST RESURRECTION
(Ezek 37:11-14) Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts. Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves [i.e., be resurrected], and bring you into the land of Israel. And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves, And shall put my [Holy] spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land [during the Millennium]: then shall ye know [Heb: understand] that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the LORD.
1. (Hosea 13:14) I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death: O death, I will be thy plagues; O grave, I will be thy destruction: repentance shall be hid from mine eyes.
